FAQs about Mandarin Careers

Q: What makes your platform more valuable than other advertising platforms?

Mandarin Careers is much more than an advertising site, it’s an essential resource public sector leaders read and rely on to advance their careers. It arrives in public sector leaders’ inboxes every day, including retired senior executives, and leaders from higher education, industry, not for profit organisations and consultancies who work with the public sector.  

This gives you niche, nationwide access to valuable ‘passive’ senior job seekers in the public sector. Unlike other public sector recruitment sites, we also publish regular content on movements in and out of government related work. 

This all means unparalleled access to the best people ready to fill your position. 


Q: Who is your audience?

Let’s start with the numbers. Our website attracts more than 320,000 high-level public sector employee visits per month, and The Juice newsletter is sent to 23,670+ engaged readers daily.

Our audience is made up of public sector leaders across Australia, including retired senior executives, and leaders from higher education, industry, not for profit organisations and consultancies who are engaged in our news and professional development content on public sector matters.  


Q: Can I create an employer profile page without having to post a job? 

Yes. To position your workplace as an employer of choice, you can include content, video and infographics. You can provide your own content or we can help you customise and position your content. All of this can be amplified on The Mandarin’s platforms including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and the The Juice newsletter, which is sent daily to our audience.
